My Manifesto: What I Do

Archiving legacy archaeological projects

Creating recombinant histories digital storytelling in multiple formats; imagination enhances and grows out of empirical stuff (database narratives) and  microhistories

Creating multisensorial life-histories of people, places, and things of the past intersecting with the present

Remediating places with re-photography, augmented reality,performance
